A bracelet based on Zomboe's chainmail model.

I really like it, but realized that links in the chainmail could rotate out of place, and make the fabric "buckle". I tried printing two layers, one on top of the other, and it worked great.

I tweaked the OpenSCAD model to allow for greater clearance in the bridges, so that it doesn't need a lot of rework to make it flexible.

Finally, I added a clasp mechanism with a couple of little "springs" that help it lock together.

It should be easy to make this completely customizable in length and width. Anyone up for it?

Instructions

Make sure your print bed is really level.

Generate the printable file using a 0.27mm layer height. (You can change this in the OpenSCAD file if you need to, but the current STL is optimized for 0.27mm).

The tongue in the clasp mechanism prints with built-in support, so you need to cut it off, and possibly trim the little bumps on the springs.
